Supply Chain Management

General responsibilities

Supply Chain Management (SCM) oversees the entire supply chain – from selecting suppliers to procurement and warehousing through delivery to the customer – while also pursuing the goal of boosting efficiency in all these processes. The Supply Chain Management team independently carries out projects for the conceptualization, rollout, and refinement of global SCM processes.

Supply chain managers are tasked with managing the supply chain with overall efficiency by preventing the risks incurred through insufficient planning of production quantities or inefficient distribution of production orders between our plants, for instance. In addition, Supply Chain Management continuously optimizes the planning systems for needs assessment and inventory management. In the area of distribution logistics, supply chain managers ensure that production orders for the same product using the same manufacturing processes are allocated efficiently between the different production facilities to optimally leverage production capacities and inventories.
